The 174 mile Hadrian's Cycleway snakes through the entire World Heritage Site. It's a cycleway that knits together existing shorter cycle routes, quiet roads and off-road tracks. Clearly signposted, the Cycleway takes you near many major Roman sites, and other attractions are just a short turn of the wheel from the main route.

Cycle Route: Gilsland-Brampton-Carlisle-Bowness on Solway-Silloth-Allonby-Maryport-Workington-Whitehaven-Egremont-Ravenglass
